Hollison Journey

“The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.” – Don Williams Jr

Thirty One.

on December 17, 2012

On Saturday, I turned another year older. Returning to a semi-tradition (meaning some years I do and some years I don’t), I wrote birthday resolutions. Below the resolutions are pics of the celebrations!

1. Ask what God wants and say “yes” to it. Too often I make my own plans, and am surprised when they fail miserably. This year I want to spend less time planning and more time asking God what the plan is. Of course, I have to follow the plan in order for it to work.

2. Read more. Each month I want to read at least 1 spiritual book and 1 book of choice. I try to read a lot, but I also watch a lot of Netflix/Hulu. Goals are good 🙂

3. More service. Whether it’s scheduled community service or random acts of kindness, I want to do more.

4. Make a silent retreat. Silent retreats are my “restart” button. I want to take the time and spend the money and make sure I connect with that.

5. Save more money. Self-explanatory.

6. Live simply. I want to cut out clutter and excess.

And now, my birthday weekend in pictures!
